SAS to end Seattle-Copenhagen service on July 31

Seattle Times travel writer


Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) will end its nonstop service between Seattle and Copenhagen on July 31, earlier than previously announced.

SAS said in February that it would stop flying the route late in 2009 or early in 2010, saying it has been "severely affected by the current recession."

"We regret that this date is earlier than first communicated," said spokesman Jorgen Holme. SAS has flown the route for 42 years. It carried 137,000 passengers trough Seattle-Tacoma International Airport last year, 4.7 percent of the airport's international traffic.

SAS will continue flying between Chicago, Washington D.C. and Newark. Customers booked on the Seattle/Copenhagen route can be re-booked or obtain a refund, the airline said.
